The HOST-RESOURCES-MIB resided in the APPS Area.
However, the APPS and OPS ADs have agreed that OPS
would take over the effort to advance the MIB (RFC1514)
to Draft Standard. Bobby Krupzack had done some initial
work on this for the PrinterMIB WG.
It seems a bit heavy to spin up the HOSTMIB WG for this.
So recently we (OPS ADs) have decided that the original authors
(mainly Steve Waldbusser) would pick up the ball and do the
- Convert the MIB to SMIv2
- Make the doc compliant with all the admin rules aka
MIB boilerplate, security section, copyright etc.
- Include the clarifications provided by Bobby.
- Clarify text
- Collect the implementation report.
This work is nearing completion. Bobby, Steve and myself have
gone over a few iterations, and the resulting work will soon
be posted as:
As soon as that happens, I'd like to start a 2 week period for
anybody to send in comments. If we all agree that the work
is of good quality, then I will ask for a 4-week IESG Last Call
for advancement to Draft Standard.
Please send any comments to the hostmib mailing list:
Please do not copy such comments to the other mailing lists
included in this posting. This email serves only as a ptr to
the hostmib mailing list where the discussion should take place.
Also, while we are collecting comments on the document, pls
send in implementation reports either to the mailing list, or
to Bobby and Steve. We can use all the info we can get. It
will help to qualify for advancement to Draft Standard.
See RFC2438 for details on that.
